How to Create a Halloween Skeleton Table Setting
Let me show you how I created this Halloween skeleton photographer table setting.
First, I started by laying my skeleton out on our farmhouse table in the dining room as the centerpiece and focal point.
Next, I foraged around the house and found a wig, costume jewelry, eyeglasses, and hat, to create her character.
I collected and staged up a few vintage cameras that I found at a flea market this past summer, which instantly transformed our Halloween skeleton on the table into a photographer!
Fallen rotten apples collected from underneath a neighbor’s apple tree added color and texture. And our neighbor’s appreciated it too…
Decorating skeletons is so much fun, check out last year’s skeletons on our porch in the post, Halloween Spirit of 2021. I used the same wig, costume jewelry, and old mink. I just switched out the hat and clothing.
How to Make Creepy Halloween Drippy Candles
Drippy candles are a must in obtaining that creepy Halloween vibe.
Because I didn’t want my vintage brass candlesticks to get melted wax on them, I created this drippy look by lighting another candle of the same color and dripping the wax from one candle to another.
That way my brass candlestick’s finish would not be ruined by the lighted centerpiece candles. I hope that makes sense.
I then displayed a small cutting board with cheese and fruits along with some small plates.
I think this would be such a fun Halloween skeleton table setting for a cocktail party or a small gathering of friends and family with the table filled with appetizers around the skeleton!
